X-Bomber Side-story - Rain Song 2015.07.31
Reading Vanessa's brilliant Star Fleet prequel; Rise of the Alliance got me writing my side-story to X-Bomber.
I've been thinking for a long time how to expand on what the game shows you.
I've puzzled for a long time what would be the best format for cut-scenes in the game. I wondered whether it would be best to sketch the characters, ships etc. then edit them in Photoshop and lastly manipulate them in the game's runtime.
So, what I have in-mind now is a shoot-em-up with a lot of heavily-illustrated narrative between missions.
Thunder in Paradise 2015.02.21
Thunder in Paradise is like Knight Rider but with a boat. It's light-hearted and awesome and has brilliant music.
6-barrel rotary cannon
6-tube missile launcher
The hull also can be electrified to prevent enemies from boarding. This feature can either be triggered by the onboard computer when intruders are detected onboard or it can be activated manually by remote.
Oil Slick Dispenser
Thunder carries at least one Waverider jetski that is launched from the back of the boat.
Thunder also carries the GATOR drone that is lifted up on-deck through the starboard weapons hatch and deployed onto land. GATOR is a buggy that can be steered remotely by use of an onboard camera. It is equipped with a grenade launcher that can fire several stun grenades without needing resupply.
The prototype version of Thunder that features in episode "" has a number of differences (as well as problems).
Visually, it is missing the cool 'spoiler/rollbar' when the scarab shell is retracted and boat looks overall less streamlined and futuristic.
You can find the three compilation movies on DVD, while the whole 22-episode series was released on DVD in German.
